A horse is worth more than riches.

Spanish Proverb


At our club children and other members can learn and develop their riding skills in a friendly, safe and supportive environment. Our emphasis is on horsemanship and sportsmanship. If you want to:

  • be safe when around and on your horse;

  • learn more about horse care and management;

  • challenge yourself in a safe and supportive environment;

  • make new friends who share your love of horses and riding; and

  • have fun riding your horse…

…then Moss Vale Pony Club may be the club for you.
 

No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.

What happens at Moss Vale Pony Club?

 

Rally days are held twice a month - on the 1st and 3rd Sunday. Each rally day ALWAYS begins with a GEAR CHECK - to make sure the horses are COMFORTABLE and the rider is SAFE.


After the gear check, activities at each of our rally days vary. They are organised by our instructors, with support from our volunteers - parents and other friends of our pony club. They can include lessons in:

  • flatwork

  • jumping

  • sporting and games

  • dressage

  • horse gear and equipment

  • horse care - washing, grooming, rugging, floating

The day is broken up by morning tea (usually on horseback !) and then a BBQ lunch - much needed after all that activity !

Other activities throughout the year include:

  • Gymkhana

  • Del Throsby dressage and show jumping day

  • Camp

  • Specialist clinics

About Pony Club

From Pony Club NSW


Pony Club is a recognised voluntary youth organisation for those interested in horses, ponies and riding. Pony Club exists to promote the physical, mental and spiritual development of young people, encouraging in them an awareness of sportsmanship and citizenship, assisting them to gain knowledge and become proficient in their chosen sport. The Pony Club differs from other youth movements because the horse is used as the main centre of interest around which personal qualities and life skills are developed, while enjoying and taking part in equestrian sports.
 

What are the objectives?

  • To encourage young people to ride and learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding

  • To provide instruction on riding and horsemanship and to instil in the members the proper care of their animals

  • To promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty, thereby cultivating strength of character and self-discipline.
